Re: Vienna R1 : Thiem def. Lacko 7-6(3) 6-3
I can tell you - he thought he don´t have to train more, he fell asleep on that position. What was worse, clay season started and he was again on zero point.
On grass little resurgence and after 3rd round in Wimbledon same story as after Dubai/Miami. He was referred to be "injured" but I don´t take these bullshits.
His bilance from Wimbledon (only non-challengers) is atrocious, 1-10 and still get career-high 51st position.
After Zagreb final he said he didn´t want to be journeyman on tour anymore. Well, 5 first round exits in summer in a row till Davis Cup, where he lost in straights to Sousa, then another 3 first round losses till today (with only reaching R2 in Tokyo and final in Tashkent CH). Not to mention his 5 clay tournaments this year - yes, 5 straight 1st round losses.
Lacko will be out of top 100 in March, unfortunately.
Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco
